As usual I did something stupid. I was looking for pdf output
which pdftex yields by default but not texexec, on my system
anyhow. And BTW the switch that works is --batch and not
So this string works as I want it to do:
texexec --batch --pdf tess.tex
It yields a readable pdf file but it stops processing at the
error message, just what the doctor ordered for my app.
